Determining Fault After a Burn Accident in Longmont

Determining fault after a burn accident in Longmont Colorado is complicated and time consuming, especially for an injured individual (as well as someone who has little or no knowledge of the legal field). Some cases appear relatively clear cut and fault seems obvious, but proving that and demonstrating your right to fair compensation is much more difficult. If you have suffered injuries after a severe burn accident, you need an experienced personal injury attorney serving Colorado on your side.

In a burn injury case, as in any personal injury case, liability has to first be established. Negligence then needs to be proven and damages then have to be argued. On top of this, there are laws and regulations specific to each state, and Colorado is no exception. You need someone with specialized knowledge on your side to support, guide, and fight on your behalf while you focus on recovery.

The Colorado burn injury attorneys at Carabin Shaw offer a free case review for all personal injury victims. Call 800-862-1260 to schedule yours.

Negligence is Established in a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Four Steps 1. Did the Defendant Owe You a “Duty of Care”?

Duty of care addresses the responsibility of the defendant (accused party) to act in a way that upholds a standard of reasonable care. This means not bringing harm to others in a foreseeable manner.

2. Was that Care Breached (or Broken)?

Did the defendant act or not act in a way that an average person would have in a similar position? If so, the defendant thus breached their legal duty of care.

3. Were the Victims’ Injuries the Direct Result of that Broken “Duty of Care?”

This means that the victim was harmed due to the defendant’s negligent actions or inactions. The resulting injuries and damages were suffered directly because of the fault of another person or party.

4. Did the Victim Suffer Damages That They Should Be Compensated For?

Can proof be provided that the victim qualifies for damages that can be compensated? This includes medical bills, pain and suffering, mental healthcare, and more.

Do I Need an Attorney to Pursue a Lawsuit and the Damages Owed to Me?

Insurance companies and guilty parties inevitably want you to settle for the least amount possible. They will sometimes take advantage of your vulnerable state to push you to settle for less than you deserve. A Longmont burn accident lawyer can help significantly to win the maximum compensation possible.

Who Could Be at Fault For Your Serious Burn Accident and Resulting Injuries?

Where did your injury take place? Who was responsible for creating a safe environment in that location? Did anyone or organization act in a way that caused these injuries?

A few examples of those at fault in burn injury cases include:

  • If your workplace has workers’ compensation insurance, a third party or another employee may be at fault. Common work injuries may include chemical burns, electrocutions, explosions, scalding injuries, and more.
  • The negligent driver of another vehicle in an auto accident whose collision caused a fire, smoke inhalation, or exposure to heat.
  • The manufacturer, marketer, or retailer of a defective product which caused severe burns when used in accordance with instructions.
  • Fires in a rental apartment or home caused by the negligence of a landlord, property owner, or property manager. These fires may have been caused by faulty electrical wiring, improperly installed appliances, heater fires, and more.
